Super Bowl 53: Tom Brady & New England Patriots beat LA Rams to win sixth title

The NFL returns to the BBC for the 2019-20 season with weekly TV highlights, online highlights and live text commentaries.

Mark Chapman hosts the BBC Two's weekly magazine shows - The NFL Show on Saturdays and NFL This Week on Tuesdays - alongside popular pundits Osi Umenyiora and Jason Bell.

For the first time, as part of the four-match London Series, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will host NFL matches, and there will be highlights of both games - the Chicago Bears v the Oakland Raiders (6 October) and the Carolina Panthers v the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13 October) - on BBC One, BBC Red Button and the BBC Sport website.

Action then switches to Wembley Stadium, where last season's Super Bowl runners-up the Los Angeles Rams will play the Cincinnati Bengals on 27 October and the Houston Texans will clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars on 3 November. Both matches will be screened live on BBC Two.

And once again, the BBC will broadcast the 54th Super Bowl live. This season's climax - the 50th in the modern era - will be played at Miami Gardens in Florida and will mark the 100th year of the National Football League.

As well as the BBC's TV coverage, there will be weekly highlights and clips available on the BBC Sport website plus a live text commentary every Sunday evening.

There will also be a range of social and digital content to support the programmes.
